Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article explores Kibbutz dress in the collection of Dan Gelbert's 1950s caricatures of Kibbutz life in Israel. His caricatures depict two feminine figures which incarnate the Israeli bourgeois aspired lifestyle and the meaningful work-centered lifestyle of the Kibbutz. According to the author, religious communities can use dress as a means for differentiating believers from non-believers. It is stated that the sartorial field not only suited Kibbutz lifestyle but also served to mark the Kibbutzim's boundaries.
